Antarctic adventure – ‘The Stowaway’

What would you be willing to do to gain the opportunity to experience an adventure of a lifetime? What risks would you take to take part in something historic? How far would you go? Would you travel to the ends of the earth?

For Billy Gawronski, the answer to that last question was “Yes.”

History is filled with events that, despite being utterly fascinating, simply fall by the wayside of our awareness. It isn’t that they are less interesting or less valid than other events – they just don’t make it to our history textbooks. They don’t make the cut.

Downeast Scenic Railroad

There ain't nothing sweeter than riding the rail.
-Tom Waits

ELLSWORTH The railroad has a long and storied history in America. It was both the backbone and lifeline of industry and commerce in many places, and it was no different in Maine. Volunteers have gone above and beyond to not only preserve this history, but ensure that future generations can actually experience rail travel for themselves with the Downeast Scenic Railway.

'[The Downeast Scenic Rail] informs people of history of the line and what its meaning has been to the community, and how it helped develop the area,' said Tom Testa, president of the Downeast Rail Heritage Preservation Trust, Inc. 'This was the link to the world.'

Bangor Auditorium seat sale draws a crowd

 

BANGOR - Pieces of the old Bangor Auditorium were carted off by the truckload last week as the public lined up to buy a pair or two of the old wooden seats from one of the city's most historic landmarks that's being torn down. Scott Boucher of Bangor was lucky enough to get his hands on some.

"I'm originally from Presque Isle and I used to come down to the big city every tournament season [to watch the games]. It has such a special memory," said Boucher. "I was [also] in the Auditorium for many years as a clown for the Shrine circus."
